I stayed here in October with two friends and we had a nice time. Very spacious rooms and I enjoyed how it was separated into two rooms (one for sleeping area) and the other area for sitting watching tv or on the porch. I also enjoyed people watching and hearing the horse hoofs!

We visit Mackinac Island every summer. This was our first winter trip. The hotel was wonderful, and the staff were so nice. We will definitely make the trip again in the winter. When we do we will be staying at the Lilac. Thanks for making this a trip to cherish.

We had a gloriously relaxing stay at the Lilac at a time of year most don't even think about staying at "The Island". We loved the large bright clean suite layout. (Get a room overlooking Main St. if you can). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. And the complimentary breakfast spread each morning was a treat...way better than the...

We usually stay at condos on the island so we can have more room and a kitchen. Lilac Tree suites have lots of room and include a mini fridge and microwave. That is so helpful with kids. Plus, it had a separate living room area that you could shut off from the bedroom. Finally, the spa tub was amazing!

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Lilac Tree in the past and we have always enjoyed our stay. The fact that the hotel is located downtown puts you right in the middle of all the action and you're never more than jaunt from all the bars, restaurants, historic attractions, ferry docks, and everything else the island has to...

We loved everything about the Lilac Tree. When looking for a place to stay on Mac Is, everyone said rooms were tiny & expensive. Not the Lilac Tree!! We had a completely separate sitting area plus a balcony overlooking the water #306. The suite was furnished perfectly for a resort --- charming! We loved the lilac soap & bath products...

Convenient location right downtown. Very pleasant staff. We had a suite with a balcony overlooking the street and lake. The room was very clean and larger than rooms at many Mackinaw Island hotels. Room was very comfortable, heating and cooling seemed to work great, also a ceiling fan above the bed was nice. Water got hot right away, shower was...
